How does IBM BigFix Lifecycle work?
Manage up to 250,000 endpoints from a single server
Manage up to 250,000 endpoints, regardless of location, connection type or operating system from a single management console. Manage heterogeneous platforms across more than 90 operating system versions. BigFix Lifecycle does all of this through an intelligent agent on each endpoint that performs continuous self-assessment and policy enforcement with minimal impact on system performance; and enables remote desktop control to streamline help desk calls and problem resolution.
Cover the full system lifecycle
Address the full system lifecycle including asset discovery and inventory, software distribution, operating system deployment, migration and re-imaging, patch management, power management and remote desktop control. Asset discovery and inventory features create dynamic situational awareness about changing conditions in the infrastructure. Quickly discover new systems, deploy agents and take complete control with closed-loop policy-based management.
Reduce management complexity and cost
The BigFix solution automates patching, remote software deployments, Windows 10 migrations, updates and re-imaging. It can also automate more advanced tasks like operating systems and application patching on clustered servers to minimize labor costs and ensure servers are patched and secure according to your policies. It also supports other common system administration tasks that need to be sequenced, such as server builds that can include deploying an operating system or changing the host name.
Simplify operations and deliver comprehensive visibility
BigFix Lifecycle accelerates update cycles, improves success rates and reduces downtime while minimizing security risks all through a single pane of glass
